on capitol hill earlier today health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was not sounding very confident. i mean, she was basically saying going to have it done by the end of the month. but she also said they have an aggressive checklist to go through, an aggressive timeline to meet. sort of putting out this feeling that perhaps it may not happen in time. but president said in dallas, this is happening in time. the other important thing, erin, the president did not go back and try to clean up that line if you like your plan you can keep it. he did not try to revise that line as he did the other night. perhaps an indication that they know that cleanup job was not going too well. >> and let me just ask you this, jim. the hits keep on coming for the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. sort of died down a little bit. maybe i'm exaggerating but felt a little bit and now gaining heat again on capitol hill again, getting a tough grilling. what exactly happened there? >> reporter: she was pressed by senators throughout this hearing about the various problems with the

-raiser in florida last night, kathleen sebelius gets nailed as healthcare.gov crashes just as the secretary smiles for her photo op. the law is falling apart at the seams and so is the president's approval rating, at an all-time low, 37%. maybe dragging it down is americans' realization that the law is a disaster. 31% approval rating on obama care. how many people think the law is working out well? only 7%. what's the white house make of all this? as ed henry knows, ed, are they so insulated that they can't even fathom the thought of scratching and starting over? >> reporter: i think panic may be a bit strong, but they're deeply concerned, they're worried. pick your adjective. bottom line, they realize the bottom is falling out both for the president's approval rating and approval of this law. if you look at this cbs poll, you already laid out some of the top-line numbers. when you dig a little deeper, it's only like 31% approval of the law. that is a drop of 12 points in one month. well, what's happened in the last month? you've had the botched rollout and the president's broken promise about, yo
